Before you go through the list of top colleges you need to understand some very important points related to Marine Engineering which are very much crucial for your future career.

Why Studying in Top Colleges is VERY important?

The most important thing a candidate needs to understand is that Marine Engineering is a very specialised branch. The curriculum and syllabus of Marine Engineering is so designed that it is useful ONLY on Merchant Navy Ships. It is little bit relevant for Port sector also but, it’s core is Shipping Industry only.

Therefore after completing your Marine Engineering course, if you don’t get a good job on merchant navy ships then it becomes very difficult for you to get a job in any other industry. So before taking admission in B.Tech. in Marine engineering course you must ensure that you are studying in an institute where the probability of getting a job in Merchant Navy shipping company is very high.

In the present market condition getting a job for Marine engineer on a Merchant Navy ship is very very difficult. Therefore if you do not complete your course from a reputed Institute then it becomes very difficult for you to get a job in a good shipping company.

Other Institutes for Marine Engineering Course

There are total 26 institutes approved by government of India to conduct Marine Engineering course. But in our personal capacity we do not recommend any other college other than these top 3 colleges for B. tech in Marine engineering course.
At junior level the demand of marine engineer is less and supply is more. Every year hundreds of candidates pass out from colleges without a job. Therefore it becomes very difficult for a college pass out to get a job in a reputed shipping company. It has been seen that if a candidate does not get job from college campus then he gets trapped by Merchant Navy agents, who cheat these candidates lakhs of rupees.
In our opinion the campus placement record of all other colleges is not very good and also it is very transparent as well. Therefore we suggest that if a candidate wants to take admission in any other college other than these top 3 colleges then he must to a thorough research about the campus placement record of the institute and after being fully satisfied only he should take admission in any other college.

Every college does a good advertisement about its Campus Placement Record to attract students. But candidate must try to know the truth from INDEPENDENT and reliable sources.
